The Best Keto and CBD Health Shake Recipes
Pursuing health and wellness is one of those things you’ll have to do for your entire life. The worst part is that as you get older it’ll only get harder to keep your health and wellness in check so you can feel good and function at your full ability at least most of the time. That’s why parents are pressured to create good habits in their children at a young age and teach them that trying to be healthy and happy isn’t a major lifestyle change, but simply a fact of life. Once you’re comfortable with this idea from a young age, it’s much easier than changing your lifestyle entirely when you’re an adult. But wherever you land on the timeline of finding a better self via good eating and health habits, it’s never too late to get started.
And if you just happen to be turning your attention toward the keto diet, you might consider adding a little CBD to your routine to pursue your health and wellness with a bit more finesse.
These keto shakes are the perfect way to start out every healthy day with and complement them with the savory addition of your daily CBD dosage. Check out our amazing recipes below
Mint Coconut Smoothie
Here’s a fun factoid for you: the keto diet was actually created to treat epilepsy first and is now being tested for a variety of other ailments to see if it can increase the quality of life on a daily basis for folks suffering from things like autoimmune disorders, diabetes and cancer. At the moment though, it’s quite popular with folks looking for weight loss solutions because, let’s face it, calorie counting really sucks. Essentially, because fats take much more energy to break down in your digestive track, you’re burning some of the calories they’re giving you as you’re digesting these compounds making your body work harder for the energy it gets. It’s also a healthier form of energy for your body, hence why those people with various ailments tend to benefit from prescribing to the diet’s details. Since the diet tends to make your body create more acids, there are some veggies and greener foods recommended to balance those acids out. Finda place for this smoothie in your weekly fuel. Since it includes quite a bit of alkaline ingredients that will balance out your acids and make for a great start to any morning.
- 4oz water
- ½ cup frozen cauliflower, chopped
- ½ avocado
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 ½ teaspoon CBD oil
- 1 tablespoon mint, finely chopped
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 tablespoon cacao powder
- 2 tablespoons collagen protein
- Sprinkled ceylon cinnamon
- Sprinkled Himalayan sea salt
- Topped with flax seed and macadamia nuts, sliced
Throw main ingredients that are not meant to be used as toppings into the blender and blend until it’s smooth and creamy. Add toppings to create a bit of a texture.
Almond Butter Heaven
If you’re just getting on the keto wagon, you might not know about the miracle of almond butter and all the other nut butters that are striking while the iron is hot and have come sliding onto the scene in delicious glory. For this reason, the almond butter smoothie can now be a reality, instead of a figment of our imagination.
- 1 cup unsweetened almond milk
- 100g unsweetened acai puree
- ½ avocado
- 3 tablespoons protein powder
- 3 tablespoons CBD oil of choice
- 1 tablespoon almond butter
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- ½ tablespoon vanilla extract
A word to the wise, acai berry puree tends to be a little clumpy. So if you’re looking for a really good texture in your smoothie, we recommend running your puree under hot water in a baggie for a couple of minutes to get it nice and mooshy before you add it to the mixture. Once you’ve got a good consistency, add the mixture to the blender and blend everything until you’ve got the desired consistency. Feel free to add ice cubes and water, as needed. When you’re finished, use a little extra almond butter on the sides of the cup to make it look nice and give you something to scrape off the sides to and enjoy!
Turmeric Keto Smoothie
Diets often consist of a staple a meal that you can manage every day and acts as a sort of rock that you base your weekly diet. It’s something consistent, something easy you don’t have to think about and something that you don’t get tired of. Creating a routine for yourself is one of the easiest ways to ensure that you’ve got a pretty decent handle on a diet and stick to it. Lots of diets where you’re essentially changing your eating lifestyle (read:keto) have high drop out rates because finding staples in your diet that you can always rely on is no easy thing.
That being said, there are two really amazing benefits of this shake. One: it makes for a great staple in every diet and can be a delicious and filling breakfast shake that makes you ready for the day ahead. Two: it’s main ingredient is turmeric which doesn’t just add a snazzy color to the shake, it has impressive antioxidants that it serves straight to your bloodstream and includes a notable anti-inflammatory effect which helps keep blood sugars and lipids (something common in keto’s high-fat diet) under control. This smoothie’s recipe is also made to address pain point in the keto diet, like getting enough fiber (read: less constipation).
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil
- 1 teaspoon granulated sugar (can substitute other sweetener)
- 200 ml full fat coconut milk
- 200 ml unsweetened almond milk
- 2 tablespoons CBD oil
- 1 tablespoon chia seed topping
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
